Used Peugeot 208

Its good looks, exciting road dynamics and practical interior have made it a hit in the Supermini segment.

French car manufacturer, Peugeot has a long history as the maker of vehicles in the exciting supermini market. Who can forget the Peugeot 205 manufactured during the 1980s, winner of ‘car of the decade’ from Car Magazine along with a What Car? ‘car of the year’ award in 1984. The Peugeot 205 GTi reached iconic status among hot hatch enthusiasts, and decades later, Peugeot continues to introduce exciting new models to their range, such as the Peugeot 208.

The Peugeot 208 was launched in 2012 replacing the Peugeot 207 model. This supermini features a sleek, contemporary design, and is available in a range of specifications with engine sizes varying from 1.0-litre up to a 1.6-litre fuel injected option. The 1.6-litre engine offers impressive performance, with a top speed of 134mph and reaches 0-60mph in 7.3 seconds. For those looking for an even more powerful ride, a GTi trim level is also available on models made from 2012 up to 2018. The Peugeot 208 GTi is a sporty 3-door offering 205bhp and 0-60mph in 6.3 seconds.
